Mashup: Heat in tears after latest loss

Tears were shed in the Heat locker room Sunday after another disappointing loss, according to Miami coach Erik Spoelstra. "This is painful for every single one of us to go through this, there are couple of guys crying in the locker room right now, it is not a matter of want," Spoelstra said after his team's 87-86 home loss to the Bulls, which featured LeBron James again missing a potential game-winning shot.

 

Read more about that story and others — including an update on the Michigan high school team whose star player died after hitting a game-winning shot last week — plus check out videos, trivia and more, at Monday's Morning Mashup.

Shorthanded Celtics take down Bucks

These are the games that good teams figure out how to win. On the road and with just nine players -- four of them who have been with the team for less than a week -- the Celtics found a way to get past the Bucks Sunday night, 89-83. It was their fifth win in a row and kept them three games ahead of Chicago for the best record in the Eastern Conference.

 

Paul Pierce led the way with 23 points on a night when Rajon Rondo (eight turnovers) and Ray Allen (2-for-8 in the first half) both struggled. The Celtics also got a strong performance from Kevin Garnett who had a double-double with 14 points and 11 rebounds and Nenad Krstic, who was 7-for-8 with 17 points. Brandon Jennings led the Bucks with 23 points. Garnett made two huge plays down the stretch, knocking down a jumper that gave the Celtics a four-point lead and also coming up with a blocked shot at the rim on the next possession.

 

The Celtics officially announced the...

BU advances to America East final

John Holland scored 16 points and Boston University held off Hartford, 55-49, in the semifinals of the America East tournament Sunday night in Hartford.

 

With the win, the Terriers (20-13) advance to the league championship game, which they will host Saturday at noon. Their opponent will be fifth-seeded Stony Brook (15-16), which upset top-seeded Vermont (23-8) in the day's first semifinal, 69-57.

 

Holland, the America East Player of the Year, hit just 3-of-10 shots, but he converted 9-of-10 free throws, including all four in the final seconds to put the game out of reach. He also had seven rebounds, three assists and two steals.

 

Also, for BU, Patrick Hazel had 10 points, four rebounds and three blocks. Dom Morris and Matt Griffin scored nine points apiece.

 

Morgan Sabia and Genesis Maciel scored 13 points each for sixth-seeded Hartford (11-20).

Bowden struggles as Mets top Sox

Starting in place of Jon Lester (flu), Michael Bowden was tagged for a pair of runs in two innings as the Mets picked up a 6-5 victory over the Red Sox at Digital Domain Park in Port St. Lucie, Fla.

 

Bowden was replaced by Andrew Miller, who gave up three runs in his two inning on the hill, all courtesy of a three-run Ike Davis homer in the third inning. Miller was the only lefty in the Sox bullpen mix to struggle on Sunday, however, as Hideki Okajima pitched a perfect fifth inning and Rich Hill offered a pair of scoreless frames in the sixth and seventh.

 

The Sox connected for three home runs, as non-roster invitees Juan Carlos Linares and Tim Federowicz each posted solo shots and Josh Reddick hit a two-run home run in the eighth inning, his second blast of the spring.

 

The Red Sox (3-5) host the Orioles on Monday at City of Palms Park. John Lackey is scheduled to start for the Sox.

Celtics announce Arroyo signing

The Celtics officially announced the signing of free agent point guard Carlos Arroyo, who was recently waived by Miami to make room for Mike Bibby. With Arroyo on the roster, the Celtics now are at the maximum of 15 players on the roster and this likely completes the mid-season makeover. Nate Robinson, Kendrick Perkins, Marquis Daniels, Semih Erden and Luke Harangody are out and Jeff Green, Nenad Krstic, Troy Murphy, Sasha Pavlovic and Arroyo are in.

 

Arroyo started 42 games for Miami and averaged 5.6 points and 2 assists per game. He will provide depth behind Rajon Rondo and Delonte West. Arroyo is expected to join the team in Boston on Monday.
